The Steep Hill to Freedom
Here we are again, Lord. Back here in this place.
Again I pray that familiar prayer, “Help me find the strength.”
My face is in the mud while my body’s wracked with grief.
I cry the same old tears at night as I try to go to sleep.
But suddenly I understand in ways I never did before-
I see through all the turmoil and I’m not angry anymore.
Where there’s constant pain there’s constant change
And God is hard at work molding me and shaping me,
Preparing me to serve.
I look back over all the times when life was hard this way-
I can’t believe I’ve come so far. I’m constantly amazed.
I look at others in their lives and things never change.
Each day is like the one before. I guess it’s easier that way.
Then I see how quickly time has moved each year that I have lived.
All that pain and heartache makes me who I am today.
Through adversity I know you’re guiding me.
My eyes will see the way that I should walk.
And though at times I’m walking with not much light at all,
I know I’ll never be completely in the dark.

This is really cool. I enjoyed it. How many times do we find ourself there in that place. The important thing is to get back up and go on forward with the Lord.
